#2017504 Unpopular Opinions

Posted by Jess on 09 December 2017 - 05:40 PM

In what sense, if you don't mind explaining? Genuinely interested!

Sorry to butt in, but I was googling and I've read a lot of stuff that says the majority of men have testicular cancer in autopsies and the majority of women have thyroid cancer and the upward spike in both of those might be from a trend of overdiagnoses and a technological evolution and not from an actual upward trend in those types of cancers. They actually reclassified a type of thyroid nodule from cancerous to non-cancerous here in the US because the protocol was to have the entire thyroid removed, even though the chances of having the cancer spread beyond that nodule in the person's lifetime was less than .5%. I thought that was fascinating af and I read a similar article about a type of cancerous ovarian nodule. 

 

THANKS FOR LISTENING TO MY IRRELEVANT INPUT 




#2016612 Ableism

Posted by Jess on 24 October 2017 - 08:03 AM

For me, I find it hard to seem like a functioning human being and talk to people about my life.  I am expected to have a higher education, have a job, and have a healthy social life.  Though, I have shcizoaffective disorder and am most likely going to live my whole life working at best a minimum wage job and live off of disability.  I've been told that "that's a shit life".  Well, yah, pretty much, and I've accepted that.  I don't really like pretending I'm normal, I actually got myself out of a deep depression by accepting my mental illness and fighting with it rather than hating it and trying to fight it.  That's something that's hard with schizo problems is I'm aware of my delusions/paranoia/etc, so I know how to hide it, and I'm really good at it, too, so I seem normal on the surface.  I find myself in too many uncomfortable conversations.  I've found it so much better when I'm blunt and I'm just like "naw, I can't work or go to school, I am not mentally healthy enough."  
 
Apologies if this doesn't even fall under ableism.  It feels like it does so //shrug.

Yeah, i think it does. Your experiences are being invalidated and you're expected to have a "better" life despite what you know you're capable of.

I received a diagnosis of wheat allergy today, after 17 years of symptoms and doctors not knowing what it was, diagnoses of everything from scabies to fungus, eczema to psoriasis and beyond, and 6 years of personally knowing definitively that I have problems with wheat.


A good doctor will change your life.


Same man, same. I remember my late brother singing her songs with his CD player and headphones on. He was a terrible singer and he'd have the volume up so high he couldn't hear how bad he sounded lmao. 

I still do this

#2012882 Assisted suicide. Murder, or mercy?

Posted by Jess on 26 July 2017 - 03:42 PM

Why? Taking drugs isn't necessarily inherently harmful.

self injury isn't necessarily inherently harmful. Tattoos, scarification, etc.


#2012863 Assisted suicide. Murder, or mercy?

Posted by Jess on 26 July 2017 - 02:20 PM

What about if the person just wants to hurt themselves, but not die?


I don't see any difference between this and making all drugs legal.


#2012856 Spanking? Yes, no, or grey area?

Posted by Jess on 26 July 2017 - 02:01 PM

That happens everywhere. There are an awful lot of shitty parents out there.


I'm more surprised it's legal here, but not a third world country.


#2012427 What's your favourite "Make a list guys" thread from the past year?
